Summer Salad

I love summer salads. And this one has protein in it to boot! I would feel perfectly comfortable with my children just having this for dinner and calling it a night. It has my daughter’s favorite food group : corn. I also love the cranberry tartness.

I think I’ll be making this tonight.

Corn, Edamame & Black Bean Salad

kernels from 2 ears cooked fresh corn
2 c cooked edamame, pods discarded
15.5-oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
